My family of 4 checked into WIlby Central on 16 May 2021 when Singapore’s Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) 2 started. and thankfully, Wilby Central had a 2 bedroom unit that met our work/study from home needs.
My two teens were delighted to have their own room, own tv, own Bose speaker to play music from (their mobile), own ensuite bathroom and the room situated quite far away from the parents’ room. This parent here (and partner) share the same sentiments. The two bedrooms were very comfortable, of a good size and afforded each of us our own privacy.
The dining table sat the 4 of us comfortably for meals. The well-serviced kitchenette allowed me to cook simple meals on some days. I brought my own rice cooker and crockpot but the rest of the cutlery were provided by Wilby. We could wash and dry our laundry within the apartment.
Two high points of the stay for me were: firstly the breakfast. Every Mondays to Fridays, breakfast is provided. Bread and pastry from Asanoya Boulangerie and sometimes more substantive fare like fried mee siam or nasi lemak, too. Being the one who usually prepares/buys breakfast for the family, having this responsibility taken away from me was simply GREAT!
Secondly, our unit afforded a view of the National Library Building, the Singapore Flyer and the JW Marriott Hotel. All these buildings have wonderful night lightings and my husband and I, on some evenings, would sit at the 2 armchairs near the window and enjoy this beautiful scenery with our favourite drinks in hand.
The Wilby staff are friendly and prompt be it the concierge, the housekeepers or the technicians. What I missed out this time was not being able to use the lounge and gym at level 5, due to the Phase 2 (HA) restrictions. But both places look inviting.
My renovated home is finally ready and although I look forward to moving back, I feel sad, too to leave what I’d describe as a sanctuary in the city. I’ll definitely recommend Wilby Central to others who need a short-term stay with easy access to public transport. Thank you Wilby Central for a most memorable stay!
